E.C. Lyons Burin Bent Square

The burin is the main engraving tool for printmakers, and is available with a square or lozenge shaped end. The square shaped burin creates a V shaped line as deep as it is wide and can also be used to enhance etched lines. E C Lyons burins are made from high grade carbon steel and are factory sharp, but require extra honing before use on end grain hardwood, copper, zinc, other metals and thick engraving plastics.
